M.Tech Project: Sponsored by Schneider Electric India
Objective-“Feasibility study on increase of electrical conductivity in Aluminium (E91) samples by cryogenic treatments
for replacing copper in busbar applications” under the guidance of Prof.V.V. Rao IIT KGP
Extended Cryogenic treatment and cryo rolling are done on E91 Aluminium sample.
Electrical conductivity is measured by four probe technique at cryogenic temperatures using an in-house
developed cryostat, LN2 and temperature sensors.
The microstructure and particle distribution after extended cryogenic treatment are compared with virgin
samples by using X-ray diffraction technique.
1) In collaboration with Defence Metallurgical Research Laboratory Hyderabad
Objective : Development of Ultrafine grain size Nickel using CGP technique” under the guidance of Scientist F ”T.Raghu,
Defence Metallurgical Research Laboratory Hyderabad and Prof R.Markandeya Department of Metallurgical
Engineering, JNTUCE Hyderabad.”
A new intense plastic straining technique named ‘Constrained groove Pressing’ was developed for the
fabrication of plate-shaped ultrafined grained metallic materials.
Micro structural Analysis, Measurement of grain size using a) Heyn Intercept Method (Microstructures), XRD
Tensile properties evaluation using UTM and Evaluation of micro hardness
2) Industrial training in Vizag Steel Plant-Vishakhapatnam.
Objective: - Improvements of secondary steel making in VIZAG STEEL PLANT “under the guidance of Prof: Ramadevi
HOD Metallurgical Engineering JNTUCE Hyderabad.”
Slag arrestor has a density value between the slag and metal so it floats between and so that it minimizes the
entry of slag in to the ladle. But the efficiency of the slag arrestor is only 50%.Thus alternative usage of Laser
camera, slide gate system must be provided at the converter shop to get slag free tapping.
Al content can be overcome by using Ca addition (Injection of Ca-Si in the liquid bath of the ladle.) That will
convert Al to Aluminates there by reducing Al content which is responsible for nozzle clogging. The best results
are obtained with Al/Ca ratio ranging between 0.10 and 0.15%.
Suggested improvement methods in VSP are Steel Oxygen potential measurement, Standardization of Ladle
covering compound, Standardization of Tundish covering compound, Bottom Purging in Ladle. On-Line
purging with Argon during tapping, Introduction of better design mould plates to enhance cooling capacity.
Introduction of Ca-Si, Lime addition after tapping.
